“With a little more attention to detail, this restaurant could earn an "excellent."”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

With a little more attention to detail, this restaurant could earn an "excellent." Especially being one of the most expensive restaurants in the city, its lack of attention to some details are disappointing. Sometimes we get the feeling that they take their high-end reputation for granted. The food and service are generally excellent, but sometimes have lapses.

“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

My guy decided to splurge for my birthday meal and we had dinner at 529. We booked a table but still had to wait 15mins after that time to be seated. We were on an upper covered balcony which consisted of three tables, and windows that didn't close properly due to recent renovations so was a little cool later in the evening. The food was great no complaints at all, the wine list had a multitude of varieties and prices but may benefit from a few lower priced options. Service was swift and professional with staff knowledgable and helpful of the menu. Would defiantly go again.

“Severly lacking!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

How do you call yourself a steakhouse when you can't even cook your steaks properly??? Worst experience I ever had! Instead of focusing on renovating your establishment, why don't you try learning how to improve the quality of your menu, which includes being able to cook a steak to your customer's satisfaction? Never again!

“A Little Disappointing”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We decided to splurge for our anniversary and regret it now. The service was acceptable, the wine super over-priced, the food wasn't especially special ( both of our meat dishes were not done to our specifications) and the taste rather mediocre. We were looking forward to having our Caesar salad prepared at out table, but the room we were seated in didn't allow the space ..crowded, no privacy.
